DESPERATE PRAYER REQUEST

Sunday, November 04, 2012

PRAYER REQUEST

I have two brothers left. We were 7 siblings and all the youngest are gone, the three oldest remain of which I am the oldest.
Some time ago the doctor found a mass on my brother's pancreas but his wife has alzheimers and he took care of her instead of himself. He tried to put her in a nursing home but they had no lock up for the Alzheimer's patients so she fought them to get out and hurt them and herself also. They kept her less than a day. In the town they live in they do not have a nursing home with an alzheimers unit. They live in California.

He got down to 137 at almost 6 foot tall. One day her caregiver which came in only to take her vitals, etc. noticed he wasn't well and got him to the hospital fast. He was in the hospital 5 days and they did an MRI. They found two tumors on his lungs and he can hardly breathe. He has copd. Now he weighs 118 and said looks like one of the starving people of Africa. When I called last night he said he was better but his wife worse. He said she doesn't realize he could go at any time.
He is 1 1/2 years younger than I.
It is such a desperate situation since he has to care for her and I know how that is. They have no children just as I have no children

He is on oxygen of course.

Anyone who prays please pray for him.

Father, I bring Irene's brother before you tonight! I ask You, Father, to touch His body with Your healing power and cause those tumors to shrivel up and die at the roots and be gone, In Jesus' Name! Father, I ask that You would also restore his wife to good health. You are the giver of life; the Healer and I know You took stripes upon Your back, Lord Jesus, that Irene's brother and sister-in-law might have healing in their bodies. So, I pray that You will do that, Father. I pray also for Irene that You would comfort her and grant her peace in her heart knowing that You are working in their lives. Thank You, Father. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

WHY I CAN'T STOP NOW

Friday, November 02, 2012

121 days ago I went on a no dessert streak.

Why emoticon

Because my dessert eating was out of control. I couldn't have just one, I couldn't have just one portion; I had to have the whole thing.

Now I can't stop. emoticon what?, stop eating. No I can't emoticon
the streak.

One reason after so long I no longer wanted dessert. I can sit beside desserts and I am not tempted.

Another reason is because of the quote by Robert E Lee.

"You must be careful how you walk, and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set." permalink Robert Edward Lee

I don't know how many people I have influenced on going on the no dessert streak.

emoticon and think. What does sugar do FOR your body.
What does sugar do TO your body.

Two different things.

Let's continue the streak. Don't become a sugarholic.

Irene

I, too, lost control over desserts and could not stop at one . . so it was best for me to give up these sugary concoctions. I do believe in moderation in all things but if something tempts me badly, it's best for me not to have it in the house!
Way to go on your streak, you have inspired many of us to follow you!

MY WONDERFUL MAGNIFICENT BIRTHDAY

Friday, October 26, 2012

Well just a couple of weeks ago I thought I was dying but now, today, God allowed me to celebrate another year of life.

I have been working a lot of the day on replying to the wonderful messages Face book and Spark people. com sent. The first I got was from the pastors in Reynosa that I have helped for years. First she wrote a beautiful thank you to me and signed it "Your children Maria and Martin" If you speak Spanish and want to see their page it is Jesucristo mi Sanador.

Then she put a video on with a beautiful song.

This morning another video with song was there from them with the Christian mananitas. Both beautiful. Even if you don't speak Spanish you would enjoy the music and pictures.

Then they started pouring in on both sites and also on my page.

Today was my keep beautiful day and my beautician would not let me pay. Before I left to go there though a very good friend came by with a bouquet and card. I had already received cards including one from a step son and his wife with a gift inside that more than paid for my lunch.

Then Sandy Rowden and I decided we would celebrate our birthdays together.
Hers was the 7th but she was out of town and they treated us like queens.

It might take me a day or two to catch up but I know you understand.

Thank you to all who read this and who wished me a happy birthday. Guess what they do get better the older you get and I want you to know something.
THEY HAD ALL KIND OF DESSERTS AND I HAD NONE.

I had the most delicious strawberries and other fruit, veggies, seafood, etc. All healthy.

I am too sleepy to jump for joy now but maybe I will do it when I get up.

IRENE IS NO ANGEL.

Friday, October 19, 2012

emoticon Yesterday I got angry, yes, angry. That is not right but I did it anyway.
Arriving at the Mexican bridge to meet the pastor's son 1/2 hour early I waited until 11:00, one hour, yes one hour after he was to show and no show.
I am sitting in the United States side of the bridge and try to call the pastors cell with the phone number I have. It didn't work as my phone was turned to Mexico, not the United states. Here on the border you think you are in Mexico.

After 11:00 I left. It was so hot and I had been sitting long enough. Every little bit I would stop and try to call. For a few miles in I am still on Mexico on my cell.

Then I finally got her and she said she didn't know where her son was. He was supposed to be with me. I called back and forth for hours. You see that wasn't my money, it was theirs. Every call is 95 cents a minute. I am getting madder by the minute.

I stopped and had something to eat thinking that would help me but my waiter did not give me good service so I did not give him a tip. Still emoticon

Came home, called, he had not called her and the daughter in law said he had gone to McAllen which is close to me. I had no idea what he was doing there.

Finally in the middle of the afternoon he called me. He got to the bridge at 1200 and had gone with a co worker to collect a pay check from their boss in Weslaco.
Now I understood that. He had to do it as the boss called and he didn't want to lose his wages which he uses to support his wife, daughter and himself.

We did agree to meet Saturday morning. I don't like to do anything on Saturday as that is my getting ready for Sunday day.

Well, when I got home and had thought not to give them the $ 100.00 extra I always give them personally and after not tipping the waiter I went to the mail box and found a surprise gift from someone who said I just thought I should send this. $200.00. So I will be giving them their $100.00. The pastor would come to our side of the bridge but he does not have papers and can't.

So see God always tries us, Tribulation works patience, Then shows us once again that He does meet all of our needs.

So all of you who thought I was an emoticon let it be known I am human just like all of us.

Then in the afternoon my girl friend who lives one mile from me was traveling going toward Oklahoma City when she got in a big dust storm. There were 30 accidents and several people injured. I was concerned because that is tornado country. She finally found a way to turn around and followed some cars out of it and found a motel. She called me while she was still sitting in her car so I really prayed. I called her later and she was well but I went online and found a picture of the pile ups.

Then last night we began to have storm warnings here. Hail was coming toward us and it was lightening but the storm veered off and went to other towns here.
Now I am wondering if my friends are all right.

Quite a day. But I ended up emoticon


God bless you.

Irene

  Oh Irene, that is why you are so special is because you are just like each of us, a human being in the flesh. LOL.

But, you have such a sweet and warm spirit of caring that just shines from you even through the sparkpages.

A person does not even have to see you face to face to feel your warmth and love of others.

You are loved and valued. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi Irene,
sending my hugs for your day.
I'm sorry you had to wait.
I'm thankful to the Lord that you are home. Prayers for your friend driving back home.
I'll think of you tomorrow as you & the pastor's son meet.
God Bless you everyday in all you do in his name,
Debbie

    Nope, you're not an angel, you're a saint.

    Thank you for sharing. You did not have to, but you did.

I hate it when I get angry, which may be more than you are thinking. emoticon

I understand that this is no good for my blood pressure, so I do try and make an effort.

As for the ending. It all turned out well. Amazing how we get what we need, no matter what the issue is. emoticon

    I think the miracle of it all I got home and waiting for me in the box was an unexpected gift of $200.00. I think that God's way of saying I understand and I forgive.
Even the Lord got angry especially at the hypocrites and those he served but they would not receive. He even overturned the tables in the temple.
As I wrote also we will meet Saturday morning and the Lord will give me the strength.

    Irene, we being mere mortals, of course we get angry! You waited a long time and in the heat and it was a trip that could have been avoided had you known he wouldn't be able to show up.
But . . . you're still an emoticon in my eyes and always will be!

    Irene, you did have a busy day, but the Angel in you outweighs the getting mad. You are still an Angel in my mind. Thanks for sharing, and probably helped to unvent.
God Bless

    Irene, at your age it is not good to get so angry. Well, not at any age. LOL!

Your time would have been better spent looking around at some beauty of your surroundings, or praying . Always take the lemons and make lemon aid , angry serves no purpose, it makes the body sad.

Hugs Mary

    Oh, that was a trial and ordeal. No wonder you got angry. Why couldn't he have called you instead of leaving you in the heat and waiting, waiting? The gift was received in quite good timing and you saw the meaning of it. You may not be an angel, but for earth, you are close enough!! -Marsha

    Dear Irene,
Yes, "there are none righteous no, not one!" As much as we want to be like Christ and have even conformed to His image we still are human and do things we wish not to do and don't always do the things we should do! Thank you Lord Jesus for coming to be my Savior... my way of escape ... my way of still being able to live eternally with you and the Father, when I accept my sinfulness, ask forgiveness from the Lord and ask Him to take my penalty for that wrong fullness and to live with me for ever!!
Blessings!! Thanks for being such a sweet example for Christ to us all!!
Daddy'sGirl
